Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell with both hands at your chest. Squat down by pushing your hips back until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Forcefully drive up by extending your legs and rotating your hips to the left and pivoting your right foot, as you raise the dumbbell over your head and to your left. Rotate back to center while bringing the weight back to your chest. Repeat the squat, then drive up while rotating hips to the right, pivoting on the ball of your left foot as you press the weight over your head to the right. Alternate this way for 12 total repetitions.
